At least 12.5% of Western Massachusetts residents are living below the poverty line, and that number is growing.
Dear Food Bank supporters,
Welcome to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts’ new blog! The latest addition to our online community, our blog will provide an insider’s look into how we and supporters like you carry out our work together to prevent hunger and assure that everyone has access to nutritious food. Staff and friends of The Food Bank, who spend their days working to improve the lives of our neighbors in need, will post personal perspectives on topics ranging from what it takes to run a meal site to how to organize volunteer efforts to events— such as the upcoming Will Bike 4 Food ride against hunger.
As part of our effort to raise hunger awareness, our blog will also strive to keep you up to date about important news from the hunger-relief community—including new Food Bank research and public policy issues that impact our work, media features, and stories from the food-assistance programs and Western Mass. residents whose lives we’re here to impact positively.
Your feedback is important to us. Please let us know if you read a post that inspired you, concerned you, or confused you. This is our effort to open up conversation and shine a light on the issues surrounding hunger in our community. We also encourage you to let us know what topics you’d like to see discussed in our blog.
Please make our blog one of your regular online stops when keeping yourself informed. Thank you—and we hope to hear from you soon!
The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts
